trillion or billion i forget what it is? cut to medicare which isn't true. and even if you wanted to say it was true, every republican said he's supporting also supports the exact same thing. they are accounted for in the ryan budget minus $200 million so $916 billion. these are the things i think are problematic in terms how the policy debate and i think that the super packs only make it worse. you have individuals who have personal opinions they are trying to force upon people. i think we would be better off with a -- we would be. i'm happy to be a part of super pac. i'm happy to defend barack obama he's the beefs and next president of the united states. and that's great. but do i wish this didn't have to be? yeah. i do. and i think that experiencing connecticut in public finance we have campaigns and in new york city they work fine. and voters while they may say they're not happy with taxpayer funded campaigns, you know, things have gone smoothly in a lot of the places that have public financing. i think that the rhetoric doesn't match the reality at the end of the day. we'll see wher
in the world do we do it without eviscerating medicare, medicaid, social security, and military spending? >> well, very clearly as you know, the republicans actually have a plan written down as opposed to obama and the democrats who have no plan to balance the budget written down. the republicans passed through the house paul ryan's budget. paul ryan does for all the welfare programs what clinton did, speaking of clinton. the one thing he did in the presidency rather than bringing us the republican house and senate, the other good thing he did was welfare reform. block granting welfare to the states. that's what the ryan plan does to save money. and that's how we balance the budget without raising taxes. >> but paul ryan has disavowed the ryan plan. mitt romney is not bound he says by the ryan plan. mitt romney has offered a plan that is actually has so little in that you can't even run the numbers. i mean, if you have a plan that is basically filled with empty magic asterisks you can't analyze whether this will deal with a budget deficit in the future. the independent tax policy center

been arrested in a mass case of medicare fraud. fbi raids in 9 cities led to the arrest of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals. the crimes scammed an estimated $432 million from medicare. a majority of the fraud took place in miami. other cities hit include chicago, detroit, baton rouge, l.a., new york, tampa, dallas, and houston. those arrested are being accused of false billing.

of the key issues in this campaign has been medicare which has really been brought to light since mitt romney brought on paul ryan as his running mate. do you think retrospectively that could actually cost him? >> i think this is more about mitt romney than it is about paul ryan. it's always more about the principal than it is about the vice presidential candidate. that being said, when you talk to trks over the last few years, ever since paul ryan unveiled his medicare plan several years ago, what they've said is we hope we can play even on medicare and this is in congressional races and senate races. the idea is they want to be able to play even on it. no one saying on the republican side we think we can win 70% or 75% based on this. that's usually where politicians want to be. they want to have issues that resonate with 75% of the people, not half the people. so if they're even at that 50% mark which i don't think they are right now, that would be considered a level of victory. it's hard to go into areas with lots of seniors and say i want to change the way medicare is structured. these pe

. reforming the tax code, not as easy but not as hard as medicare and medicaid. >> well, let me back you up for a second, because what really we face as we look at the long-term fiscal outlook in the u.s. is a three-part challenge. we know that we have entitlement programs on their currently trajectories are not sustainable. we know that we have a tax code that can almost surely be improved with various reforms and we also know that we have a set of expiring provisions in both the tax code and the budget sequester which starts in january of 2013 if nothing changes which creates a lot of turbulence in fiscal policy unless we do something about that. the real challenge for u.s. policymakers and it's going to be a big challenge after the election, i think, is to try to figure out a way to get through the near term without causing lots of disruption and that probably means trying to avoid going over the fiscal cliff, while at the same time beginning the challenge and process of long-term fiscal adjustments. when i suggest that social security's probably the easiest place to start, it's not some
